Since my accident (see “Oz – Don’t forget the scarecrow,” July 31), I’ve been busy reconstructing another Old black truck. Many people believe that I’ve been using the same old Ford service truck for the past 30 years. Really, though, this will be the 3rd in a series of nearly identical OBTs.

“Then Jesus called for the children and said to the disciples, ”Let the children come to me. Don’t stop them! For the Kingdom of God belongs to those who are like these children. I tell you the truth, anyone who doesn’t receive the Kingdom of God like a child will never enter it.” Luke 18:16

With roughly 8 million middle-class Americans currently over the age of 75, the costs of needed housing and personal assistance is already a big and seemingly intractable issue. A new study suggests it will be bigger and even more problematic in 2029, when the number is projected to almost d…

Recently we, like millions of other people, saw the “Avengers: End Game” movie. Without divulging too much information, I’ll share that 1 scene in the 3-plus hour movie has sparked some debate.

 Last week the orthodontist told our 12-year-old son that there’s a good chance before he goes away to college he’ll need to have his wisdom teeth removed. Without batting an eye, our son quipped, “Well, then I just won’t go to college.” Somehow, I don’t think that’s the response she was exp…
